Usquibble-Review

U what? I here you ask! "Kids supporting kids" 
Usquibble is a new company that sell 100% certified organic cotton tee shirts, using designs by kids with water based inks. They donate at least 25% of the profits from the sale of each tee to less fortunate children, working with charities such as that below. The idea is that children design the tee shirts and help other children with the sale proceeds! How cool is that?!
We were recently asked if we would like to review a tee or two and Usquibble asked for the monkey's names and ages. They have tee's fitting children aged 3-8yrs. So I decided to ask big monkey if he would like one and we asked Usquibble to choose one for us.
A short while later a package addressed to big monkey arrived through the door and he was very keen to get it open and take a look! I have to say, I was immediately impressed. The eco friendly packaging was personalised to monkey and very well gift wrappedwith a hand written note to him and gift tag, also with his name on. I think he felt very special opening it.
The shirt we received was a great choice for a five year old monkey! A green 'Go Green' one. The size (aged 5) is a perfect fit on him. It is of very good quality and washed and ironed well. Big monkey has put it through it's paces doing his various Olympic champion poses in it, as you can see!
He seems to like it a lot and I have to say, he is fussy! Now, one of the other aspects of Usquibble is that they encourage the kids to design a tee using the tee shirt template enclosed in the box, and hold regular contests where people can vote for the best design that will then be sold online and in their other selected retail outlets.....a very cool idea that I know big monkey would like to get involved in, as he loves drawing. We've not yet designed a tee but it's on the list of things to do. You can get involved in this on their website.
In conclusion I have to say I'm very impressed with Usquibble, the personal touch and quality of garment is fabulous. I know big monkey will get lots of wear out of his tee and he gives it the thumbs up too! 
If you would like to find out more, design a tee or purchase one do take a look at their twitter account and facebook page.

*We were sent a tee for review purposes. All opinions and thoughts are my own*
